books on cross-cultural issues

Cultures and Organizations: Software of the Mind - Geert Hofstede - 304 pages [New Ed.] (23 May, 1994) HarperCollins

Still the classic work on the subject.

Riding the Waves of Culture: Understanding Cultural Diversity in Business
Fons Trompenaars, Charles Hampden Turner - 275 pages (October 1997)
Nicholas Brealey Publishing Ltd; ISBN: 1857881761

Interesting, but read Hofstede first.

Cultural Software: A Theory of Ideology [Amazon.com link - n/a in UK]- by J. M. Balkin, pub. Yale Univ Pr. 2003

I think that this is an important contribution to the debate.
